In a small Arizona town, the Garcia girls experience the joys and rigors of romantic love over the course of a summer. Grandmother Dona (Lucy Gallardo), head of the family, begins a relationship with her driving instructor, while her daughter, Lolita (Elizabeth Peña), tries to decide between getting involved with a co-worker or a married man. Meanwhile, teenager Blanca (America Ferrera) isn’t interested in the unsophisticated local boys and falls for an exciting out-of-towner. (Digital Presentation)
